Six Things To Think About If You Won't Be Hiring A Wedding Planner*

*This is a collaborative post*

With so many decisions to make when it comes to planning a wedding, as well as lots of logistical and timing issues, it is easy to see why many people choose to hire a wedding planner. A wedding planner can reduce stress, there is no lie, as a lot of the logistics are dealt with by them. But let’s face it, that can be pretty expensive if you’re looking to get married on a budget. So if you’re planning your wedding out on your own, but want to pull it off with military precision, then with the right mindset, you can certainly do just that. Here are some tips and tricks for wedding planning if you’re not planning on hiring a professional.

Haul Post!

I've definitely developed a bit of a shopping addiction, guys. I've still got, at least, enough content for another two haul posts after this one. I know I've said this before, but I'll say it again. I don't write these posts to brag. I write these posts to reflect back on things I've been loving and buying recently. I'm aware that I am so lucky to be able to spend and shop as I do, and I don't take it for granted. With that being said, here's what I've been buying recently!

When I got rid of my iPhone, I also got rid of my Apple Watch. So I needed to replace it with something. I decided to go with the Fitbit Alta, as it was a very reasonable price, and I loved the colour!

Book Review: See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt

On the morning of August 4, 1892, Lizzie Borden calls out to her maid: Someone's killed Father. The brutal axe-murder of Andrew and Abby Borden in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts, leaves little evidence and many unanswered questions. While neighbours struggle to understand why anyone would want to harm the respected Bordens, those close to the family have a very different tale to tell - of a father with an explosive temper; a spiteful stepmother; and two spinster sisters, with a bond even stronger than blood, desperate for their independence.

Let's Talk Weddings: Stationery Goals!*

After the dress and the rings, I think that wedding stationery is the next most important part of any wedding. You want to make an impression when your invitations slip through the letterbox of your friends and family, so choosing the right invitations is crucial. 

There's so much to think about when choosing your wedding invitations. From whether you want Save The Date cards or just invitations. And whether you're looking for matching place cards and seating plans. Are you going to do it yourself or order your stationery from a wedding stationer? 

If you have a creative/artistic streak, you might think about doing your own invitations. But if you're anything like me, you'll be looking for someone who can design them for you! And that's where Big Day Print* come in.

July Reading Wrap-Up//August TBR

I know I've said this before, on more than one occasion, but seriously; how the hell is it August already? I've been reading voraciously recently, and I finished a grand total of 10 books in July. That's pretty damn good, even by my standards. I've got so many great books on my TBR pile for August, and I can't wait to share them with you. But first, here's what I read in July.


The Girl Before, by JP Delaney, was one of my favourite books this year. A fantastic, original thriller full of suspense, plot twists, and a shock ending. I was glued to this book, and devoured it in just a few days. I can't rave about it enough; an absolute must-read!

August Goals!

calligraphy, hand lettering, handwriting

I'm trying really hard not to write an introduction that bemoans how quick the passing of time is but I'm finding it difficult. I can't believe I'm writing my goals for August already. It seems like only yesterday that I was writing my New Year's Resolutions, and now we're only a few months away from Christmas, and 2018. Whuut?! Anyway, silly old me forgot to write my July goals down in my planner and only thought about them when I started writing this post. So I'll be amazed if I've managed to tick off even one of last month's goals. But let's see, shall we?
